We would like to inform you that we are organizing the conference "Recent Trends in Analysis" in honor of Nikolai Nikolskii. The conference will take place at University Bordeaux 1 from August, 31, to September, 3, 2011, the last day of the conference being intended for an excursion and informal discussions.

The conference is aimed at the latest advances in the function theory, harmonic analysis, functional analysis and operator theory. We also want to catch this opportunity to celebrate the life-long outstanding mathematical career of Nikolai Nikolskii as well as his past 70-th birthday.

The confirmed plenary speakers are:

  • Wolfgang Arendt, University of Ulm, Germany
  • Albrecht Boettcher, TU of Chemnitz, Germany
  • Alex Brudnyi, University of Calgary, Canada
  • Gilles Pisier, University Paris VI, France - Texas A&M University, USA
  • Kristian Seip, NTNU, Trondheim, Norway
  • Vern Paulsen, University of Houston, USA
  • Sergey Treil, Brown University, USA
  • Alexander Volberg, MSU, USA - University of Edinburgh, UK.

Unfortunately, the funding of the conference is quite tight, and we will be grateful if you find a possibility to cover your participation at the event from your own sources. Some support on exceptional basis is, however, available for reimbursing young researchers (Ph.D. students, post-docs) and participants from countries providing little funds for this type of travel (Eastern Europe, Northern Africa, etc).
